Hennepin County PSF Skyways

In preparation for the increased pedestrian traffic during Super Bowl LII, Hennepin County engaged Archimea to design the upgrade of the skyways at the Public Safety Facility in downtown Minneapolis.

New strong colors were strategically positioned to improve way-finding (blue leading North towards Haaf Memorial Ramp and yellow leading South towards Government Center Parking Ramp). Carpet graphics were chosen to relate to existing stained glass panels. The new flooring creates a more generous width perception. The angled color bands highlight the dynamic connection to the skyway glazing and provide visual interest.
